In the September 2nd issue of Rolling Stone they’ve included a little excerpt on Avenged Sevenfold’s song “Nightmare.” I’ve included the scan (though not readable) and what the excerpt says below.
Avenged Sevenfold frontman M Shadows was meeting his fiance before his wedding in 2009 when inspiration struck: “I was riding my bike and started singing into my Blackberry,” he recalls. Four hours later, after a detour to a studio, Shadows had a fleshed out demo – and one overly pissed-off bride. But all is forgiven now, epecially since that song, “Nightmare” helped the metal band’s fifth album, Nightmare, land at Number One. While making the disc, Jimmy Sullivan died of an (accidental) overdose. The band is dedicating the album, and its current tour with Disturbed, to him. Says Shadows, “It’s going to be a tour where there’s a lot of healing.”
Thanks to Brittany for scanning it and sending in the excerpt!
